NAB 2011: Nevion to Debut Latest Flashlink Video Transport Products
Nevion will introduce new Flashlink video transport products that enable an efficient and cost-effective way of transporting 3G/HD/SD-SDI signals at the 2011 NAB Show (booth #SU7217).
“We continue to innovate on a platform that revolutionized the broadcast market with powerful yet compact, low-energy optical solutions,” says Arne-Johan Martinsen, director of product management, Flashlink. “Our new modules can be deployed easily in a wide variety of settings—from permanent central facilities to temporary event venues—and offer the reliability and cost efficiencies we’re known for.”
Flashlink optical converters are used by broadcasters for a range of inter- and intra-facility transport applications across the globe. The entire optical CWDM transmitter range now supports 18-wavelength channels. This capacity increase also applies to space-saving Flashlink Compact optical converters and the optical transmitters and receivers in the VikinX Sublime line of compact routers. When combined with the new Flashlink one-slot 18-channel, low-loss CWDM filter, these solutions provide customers with efficient and flexible optical transport.
Nevion adds 3G capability to its existing HD time division multiplexer platform, allowing broadcasters to pack up to eight asynchronous SD-SDI signals into one fully-compliant 3G-SDI stream. These modules accommodate short-haul CWDM and DWDM optical transmitters and short- and long-haul optical receivers, making them ideal for any fiber transport application.
Flashlink’s extended audio embedder range has also been upgraded with 3G-SDI support. The AV-3G-XMUX is a highly integrated audio embedding module that provides simultaneous embedding and de-embedding of eight AES3 stereo digital channels from a digital 3G, HD or SD serial video signal. The new module supports all eight AES group audio channels in 3G-SDI level A and four AES group channels in 3G-SDI level B.
